It is good to see a company making hard but needed changes. I hope that it will be successful for them. I know that it is hard on those being laid off, I hope that they will be able to find employment soon. The razor thin consumer market is a hard place to be and profit in as we have seen. Good luck Cisco!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
